Invoca, the cloud leader in AI-powered conversation intelligence, announced a new integration with Five9, an industry-leading provider of cloud contact centre solutions.
By connecting data from digital marketing campaigns to sales conversations handled by contact centre agents, Invoca and Five9 enable CX-focused companies to leverage the contact centre as a revenue growth engine and deliver more human customer experiences at scale.
Consumers Making “High Stakes” Purchases Want Both Digital and Human Engagement
Modern consumers start their buying journey through digital experiences – whether seeing a compelling ad on Google, visiting a website to do research, or watching a video on YouTube. But when making a “high stakes” purchase – like buying a car, getting a quote for insurance, or applying for a mortgage – these consumers turn to experts in the contact centre for advice and reassurance before making a final buying decision. These consultative conversations represent a “moment of truth” where brands can acquire a new customer for life or lose out to a key rival.
But Marketing and Contact Center Teams Lack Unified Data, Hurting Growth and CX
While these customer journeys span digital engagement and human conversations, the marketing and contact centre teams owning these respective areas lack the unified data to deliver great experiences and optimize growth strategies. Marketers cannot analyse what marketing campaigns on Google and Facebook drive sales in the contact centre, and agents have no idea what promotions and products consumers were researching online before they called for advice. As a result, brands deliver poor experiences for customers and fail to achieve the contact centre’s full potential as a revenue driver.
Invoca and Five9 Empower Brands to Maximize Contact Center Revenue Impact
With the Invoca / Five9 integration, companies can utilize a unified, data-driven approach to maximize the joint impact of marketing and contact centre teams. This integration enables companies to:
Provide Marketers With Actionable Data on Contact Center Sales. With complete visibility into the entire customer journey, marketers can finally analyse which of their marketing campaigns on Google or Facebook drove sales to the contact centre. Marketers use Invoca data to connect those initial pre-call clicks to the calls made in the contact centre, thus helping them reduce their overall CPA and increase their marketing ROI. Agents can tailor live conversations to personalize the customer experience based on the caller’s pre-call journey.
Optimize the Blend of Automation and Human Engagement in the Contact Center. Contact centres can intelligently prioritize and route callers in Five9 based on data from pre-call digital journeys captured by Invoca. For example, a new customer who adds an expensive item to a shopping cart can be routed directly to a dedicated queue of high availability agents, avoiding any hold time that might jeopardize the sale. Conversely, a call from an existing customer about a straightforward topic, like checking order status, can first be routed to a Five9 Intelligent Virtual Agent (IVA) for self-service triage and potential resolution. This approach helps every contact centre optimize the combination of high-value agent capacity and automation.
Deliver Higher Touch Human Service, Using Data from Digital Interactions. With data from Invoca, agents using Five9 can understand what the caller was doing online before escalating to the voice channel for assistance. For example, an agent can see when a customer is researching a specific product or responding to a particular offer. The agent can use this pre-call context to provide more tailored recommendations based on where digital friction occurs (e.g. “I gather you were having trouble with the promo code, I can help you complete this transaction”). Having this pre-call context maximizes opportunities for agents to delight the customer at a critical moment of truth.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Five9,“ said Gregg Johnson, CEO of Invoca. “Together, we are empowering marketing and contact center teams to drive revenue growth, optimize the customer experience, and stand out from the competition.”
“Our partnership with Invoca enables companies to bridge the gap between marketing and the contact centre,” said Jake Butterbaugh, Senior Vice President, Global Partner Sales, Five9. “This will help our customers accelerate sales growth and further raise the profile of the contact centre on the CEO agenda.”
